Is Mavado a video game?

The truth is finally out Dancehall’s latest talent Mavado is actually a cynical marketing ploy by the manufacturers of the game Grand Theft Auto. OK well maybe not but his over the top Gangsta style fits well with the game.

It’s a shame really as Mavado is a huge talent. If he would drop the skull bore, marrow fly lyrics we could appreciate him a whole lot more. Check this post on the heatwave blog for a great tune by him without stoopid gangsta lyrics.

Meanwhile maybe Mavado should read this or this or this or this… there is a fine line between commenting on what goes on in Jamaica and glorifying an attitude/lifestyle that kills kids everywhere.
Lecture over.

Props to computerstyle for the heads up on the youtube link.
